Top NYC Exhibitions opening this week

WEDNESDAY

Dieter Roth at Hauser & Wirth
January 23 – April 13, 2013
Opening: January 23, 6PM–8PM
511 West 18th Street
Sculptor, painter, printmaker, collagist, poet, diarist, graphic designer, publisher, filmmaker, and musician, German-born Swiss artist Dieter Roth (1930 – 1998) has been described as “a performance artist in all the mediums he touched.” Everything Roth made for this exhibition involved acting out a central concept of art and life as utterly indivisible – a single enterprise in which material stuff is subservient to the emotional and sensual experience for which it stands.

THURSDAY

Marco Brambilla CREATION (megaplex) at Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery
January 24 – february 23, 2013
Opening: January 24, 6PM-8PM
532 West 24th Street
Drawing from an array of pop cultural sources in order to re-contextualize century old histories, Marco Brambilla’s films continue to challenge the standards of both art and film. The third in a trilogy of 3D videos that started with Civilization (Megaplex) (2008) and Evolution (Megaplex) (2010), Creation (Megaplex) (2012) presents a spectacular cinematic composition that culls from a vast archive of iconic Hollywood films.
